yes, shave entirely using scissors first (if it is too bushy and trim to a small length), then clippers to practical non-existence, then a razer to smooth things out...this is from experience after the first time which gave me horrible razer burn and itching for weeks!

And take something to entertain yourself - chances are you'll be hanging about for hours - as a non emergency, other essential ops may be triaged to happen before you, which can be annoying, but having been in both situations, I know its necessary.
Canulas have never been too bad for me, certainly no more painful than a blood sample. You'll be fine.

Yeah. Not to mention the cringe factor of the nurses turning up with a bowl of water and some soap. I'd defo do it yourself if I were you.

I'd consider using hair remover - the hairs grow back with pointy ends rather than cut ends so there is less itching

I'd use caution though: http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-reviews/B000KKNQBK

Good luck, you'll be fine i'm sure. Let us know how you get on. Life will be so much better for you once it's repaired.
The wife had hers years ago now and it's completely healed and perfect, no pain at all

Its now 8 days since I had it done, It didnt stop people emailing me on the evening the night before asking me to do work. I politely refused to acknowledge their emails. TBH it wasnt to bad though speaking to the assistant surgeon pre op he said not to run golf pick up little one for 3 months!!???!!! everyone else said 2 - 6 weeks.
Aunt in law stayed with me until i got called through to the special room where you can sit with no pants on, was in there about 1 and half hours with old men watching bbc News before I got called to go through. Walked across to the the operating theater prep room got on the trolly and talked to two men in blue. I remember slagging of 1&1 web design company then heard your off to sleep now.
Next thing I woke up, I said oh hello 'Vicky' ( I have a friend that she looked like) she said oh im not vicky my reply was "Do I still have 2 testicals" at which point I was whipped back to the day ward.
NOTE they dont like you going WEEEEeeeeeee as you are pushed through the corridors.
After a while in the day ward i was offerred toast and tea, got to be said the toast was the best I have ever eaten. A hour afterwards they were like can you move your legs, looking a bit confused I lifted my right leg no problem on to the left and nothing happened. This is quite normal by all acounts and nothing to be scared of, but was the weirdest feeling ever, I could wiggle my toes, roll my ankle, fut for the life of me I couldnt lift my leg or feel my thigh.
No bother it normally takes 2 hours to wear off sometimes a bit longer. Time passed and nothing. Ended up staying in overnight as it was still asleep at 8 felt it starting to wake up at midnight.
Next morning got up and walked around fine, got a lift home was ok then On saturday I got a cold, That stings a little when you cough.
Had my first little walk out yesterday. Have cancelled work for monday and tuesday next week as I dont think I will be up to driving by then.
All in all though not as bad as I thought pre op

Cheers @witch No I asked and they wernt that keen on doing the gas. I had the numbing cream on though, that talking to the other guy while it was done and knowing that the only choice was to have it done made it not so bad. It annoyed me after the op when it was still in me just flopping around

Well done for letting them do it then. I must have looked more worried or as if I might go nuts if they tried to inject me. I would have done, too
